Bit of a difference of opinion on scoring this place with my wife. I rate it higher than her. It stands between a pub and fine dining. The chef actually served us(it was very quiet). There were loads of flavours on the plates-most very tasty- some a little weird.However my duck was superbly cooked and we both ate everything on... More

This is a brilliant restaurant. The couple who own it are exceptional. Very friendly and helpful. Food is outstanding and very reasonably priced. Don' t miss the desserts, they are to die for. Service is second to none. Just go, you won't be disappointed. Highly recommended.

After a bit of a walk and getting lost in the city we managed to find Le Carousel for dinner.

The owner/chef is clearly passionate about his craft and has a great... More

An absolute gem of a restaurant off the beaten track and not central but not to be missed! We went the first time in 2013 and returned in 2016 with our friends.. and we were NOT disappointed! Great food, great quality, great price!

Two recent visits have proved that this restaurant is among the very best in Saumur, and we would highly recommend a visit for great dining experience. As a bonus prices are reasonable at this level

My wife and I attended with another couple we were friends with after reading some reviews of the restaurant. It was fantastic. No negatives to say (which is odd for me!). The chef came out and explained the parts of the menu we couldnt read and even managed to crack a few jokes (on several occasions) at my friends expense... More

My wife and I have visited Saumur many times and always enjoyed this pretty town which is twinned with our home town of Warwick. On this visit we decided to look for a restaurant that was outside the usual tourist fare of the centre. Whilst walking near to the equestrian buildings we came across Le Carrousel. What a find! When... More

Really enjoyed several visits to this restaurant last summer. Good variety available on a reasonably priced menu and service from this husband and wife team was first class. You can choose whether to dine inside or out and weather permitting each is very comfortable. Looking forward to going back this year
